YouTube Was down. The world’s biggest video host and second-largest search engine was inaccessible as of 5:25 p.m. ET (USA), meaning that instead of seeing your favorite viral videos, cats and memes, visiting the site serves up a big ol’ 500 Internal Server Error:
Early Tuesday morning, YouTube experienced some sporadic outages affecting how certain videos were viewed. Since you can’t visit YouTube, let us know your favorite alternatives in the comments.
In a statement, YouTube said:
